I’ve heard the road to every truth
it’s just a cul-de-sac,
there’s ladies and the lions there
but you know it’s just an act.
You search the world for the milk of the pearl,
she always takes it black,
but you’ll love her till it all goes dark,
you’ll love her even after that …
Ever notice how when justifying a child’s misbehavior no one ever says stuff like “girls will be girls” or “she’s a girl”, but the list of things a “young lady” can’t do is almost endless?
You learn from a young age that masculinity comes with freedom; femininity comes with restrictions.
